Vermeer D36x50 series II

"When HDD operators talk, Vermeer listens. It is that approach that has made the Vermeer Navigator an industry leader in horizontal directional drilling. Now equipped with more features and innovative options than ever before, Vermeer offers the D36x50 Series II midsized horizontal directional drill. Powered by a John Deere 4045 Tier 3 diesel engine providing 4,995 ft-lb (6772 Nm) of torque and 36,000 lb (16,329 kg) of thrust/pullback force, the D36x50 Series II is ready for a wide range of bores, even in difficult ground conditions. An ergonomically designed operator's station features the Vermeer-exclusive Multi-Function Display (MFD), an integrated remote display that is compatible with select DCI drill head locator systems. For precise, fingertip control of key machine operations, the D36x50 Series II is equipped with electronic joysticks. With the highest power-to-size ratio in its class and narrowly designed rack and pinion for a small footprint, the D36x50 Series II is built to perform in confined spaces."
